Thailand’s cost-of-living, combined with its highly affordable private healthcare system, continues to attract foreign patients, making it one of the top medical tourism destinations in the world.

  1. Check Surgeon Qualifications

You should always check the qualifications of surgeons at prospective clinics. At the very least, they should be fully trained at a Thai medical school. International training is a bonus, and many Thai surgeons do spend time abroad for exactly that reason.

  1. Ask About Surgeons’ Facelift Experience

Obviously, you want to visit a clinic with experienced surgeons. However, their expertise needs to be relevant to the procedure you are getting. Make sure they have carried out many facelift operations all with a high success rate. Some questions to ask are:

  • How many years have you been performing facelift procedures?

  • Approximately how many facelift procedures have you completed in total?

  • What is your success rate for facelift procedures?

  1. Find Out What Guarantees t he Clinic/Surgeon Offers

It’s important to find out what guarantees are offered in case something isn't quite right or if complications develop. All surgery carries a risk, no matter how good a surgeon is, so find out what your surgeon’s warranties are should anything adverse happen. Some surgeons offer free corrective surgery; just make sure you read the fine print before committing to anything.

  1. Read Reviews

These days, a reliable way to build confidence in any product or service is to read reviews. The same goes when selecting a facelift clinic in Thailand. Find out what real people are saying about the surgeons, facilities, and staff members before booking.

If you're interested in any of our clinics and hospitals, such as the KTOP Clinic , Nirunda International Aesthetic Centre or Yanhee Hospital Health And Beauty , then you can find reviews on each one of their pages. Most of these are written by international medical tourists, including those from Australia and New Zealand.

The Bottom Line

Thailand’s top clinics will allow you to transform your appearance by undertaking this normally unaffordable surgery - if you were to do it back home, that is. Yes, it is possible to save thousands and thousands - just make sure you put in the time and effort when finding a top clinic that is right for you.
